Bien reçu dans les temps et strictement conforme à mes attentes : posséder un guide d'identification tel que l'on peut souhaiter à l'heure actuelle !

1 - En effet, j'envisage un séjour au Pantanal dans les deux prochaines années et je me prépare en conséquence. Et bien sûr, l'achat de ce guide fait partie de ces préparatifs au voyage.

2 - En ouvrant au hasard le guide reçu ce jour, le sourire me vint aux lèvres : illustrations plutôt grandes par rapport à d'autres guides (d'autres pays) qui remplissent les pages en accroissant le nombre d'oiseaux par page au détriment de la lisibilité des images et donc de leur pertinence en tant qu'aide à l'identification, illustrations (plutôt) fidèles pour les (quelques) espèces que j'ai eu le loisir de pouvoir observer en Argentine en 2006 (Guira cuckoo, snail kite, buff-necked Ibis, etc.), les cartes de répartition sont claires, les textes aident à la détermination (adultes/immatures, etc.) ; bref, je suis satisfait.

3 - Comme tous les guides d'identification d'oiseaux, il manque, je trouve, des données plus étoffées sur la biologie, le comportement des espèces ; ceci bien que certains oiseaux emblématiques aient sur une ligne/une phrase un développement à propos d'une de leur caractéristique frappante (Hoatzin, etc.).
Mais bon, il ne faut pas oublier qu'il s'agit de bouquins de terrain et non de bouquins à placer uniquement dans la bibliothèque ... Mais c'est la seule raison qui m'a fait ne pas mettre 5 étoiles ... On a le droit d'être exigeant, non ?

FIVE STARS AT LEAST ! 21 janvier 2011
Par JR FLETCHER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The waiting is over. Here is the Guide to Central Brazil's birds from the foremost experts in the field ! Ridgley, Gwynne and Tudor have together and separately played major roles in the production of virtually every primary Field Guide in Tropical America. I wish this volume had been available when I was guiding birders in South America.
The facing-page layout of this long-awaited volume with its beautiful art, maps and clear and accurate species accounts is terrific - the whole thing is very well thought out. It's as if the best ideas from previous guides from this 'team' have all
been put to work in this volume.
WCS' Birds of Brazil series wisely focuses on just the regional birds (still a huge list - here 740 species!, most illustrated), as an 1800+ species book for all of Brazil would be too big and hard to use in the field.
A GREAT addition to the library of anyone interested in a clearer understanding of the distribution of South American avifauna, and an absolute FIVE-STAR MUST for any birder heading out to sample the huge species list of Central Brazil.
'Don't leave home without it !'
This is the model 21st Century field guide. The book is not expensive and the concept of its royalties going for conservation education in Brazil makes me feel good, too.
Now I can start waiting impatiently for the NEXT volume ! J.R. Fletcher

Easily best field guide to take to this habitat region of Brazil 24 février 2011
Par Jack Holloway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
THE BASICS: softcover, 2010, 322pp; illustrates nearly all 740+ species found in the Pantanal and Cerrado habitat zones of south-central Brazil; majority of species shown with only 1 illustration unless differences exist between the genders; artwork by several artists is of very good quality; paragraph of text focuses mostly on description, identification, and similar species; short notes given on voice, habitat, and distinctive behaviors; range map shows separate color for resident, austral vagrants, and boreal vagrants along with state borders and major rivers

THE REVIEW: Coming on the heels of several other Brazilian field guides (with a few more to come), this book is a very good resource to a popular birding area in Brazil. Somewhat different from other field guides that typically focus on geo-political boundaries, this field guide concentrates on distinct, major habitat types: The Pantanal and the Cerrado in south-central Brazil.

Nearly all 740+ species are illustrated by very good color plates. Despite being done by several different artists, the artistry blends well together. The proportions, colors, and field marks are to be commended. The only two features that stand out for minor criticism is the somewhat diffused or muted colors on many plates. I can't tell if this is due to the printing or to the artistic style. Second, many of the birds are shown by only a single illustration. However, the distinct male/female plumages are shown when any differences exist. And, some birds such as parrots, hawks, swallows, nightjars, and shorebirds are shown in flight.

Nearly all illustrations for the passerines are taken directly from another South America book, which is the condensed "Field Guide to the Songbirds of South America: Passerines" by Ridgely/Tudor in 2009. These same illustrations seem to have been enlarged by about 15% for this new book. As a plus, some species not illustrated in the prior book are now shown in this newest book. Examples include Fawn-breasted Wren, Cone-billed Tanager, Southern Antpipit, and Reiser's Tyrannulet. Unfortunately, several birds are still represented by only text such as the Forbe's Blackbird, Chapada Siuriri, and the Olivaceous Elaenia.

In the format of a typical field guide, a paragraph of text is found directly across from the illustrated bird. This material focuses mostly on describing the bird, pointing out key identification features, and comparing similar species. I find this text to be very good as well as complete. It easily exceeds the amount of identification material found in any other Brazilian field guide to date (e.g. books by Honkala, van Perlo, Sigrist, Souza, Develey). Additional, brief notes are provided to outline the bird's habitat, describe its vocalizations, and to give useful tips on distinctive behaviors.

A range map is provided for each of the illustrated species. The map is decently sized at 3x3cm and uses three different colors to represent resident, austral wintering visitor, and boreal wintering visitors. Some extra detail is also drawn in which are the state boundaries and major rivers. This range map is a bit different, following the aim of the book which is to focus on the habitat and not political boundaries. The perimeter of this large area covers several Brazilian states, each with its own boundary shown. The range of the bird is shown only within the boundaries of the Pantanal and Cerrado habitats. Unfortunately, it does not show where the bird's range may extend into the surrounding regions.

A nice touch with this book is putting in an indication of the bird being endemic. Next to each Brazilian endemic, you will see a small Brazilian flag. And, if the bird is a near-endemic, meaning it's found primarily in Brazil, only half of the flag is shown by the bird's name. This tiny touch can be very useful for anyone who may be unfamiliar with the region's birds.

Attesting to the conservation background of the book's publisher, the first 29 pages provide a nice introduction to these popular birding habitats and to their conservation concerns. In addition to giving a good overview for each of 10 different habitat types, quality color pictures offer a nice sample of each area.

Also noted in the introduction are plans for this book to be the first of five books, each representing specific habitat regions of Brazil. After looking through this field guide, I am very eager to see and purchase those future books. Once those five are done, I believe this series will be the benchmark for Brazilian birding books. This book is easily the one that would be most favored and recommended for use in the field when in this region of Brazil. No other Brazilian guide exceeds the artwork found in this book nor comes close to matching its identification text.

If you go birding in the Pantanal or the Cerrado, it would be a mistake to not use this book. No other book would really be needed unless you simply like to have additional illustrations on hand. - (written by Jack at Avian Review with sample pages, February 2011)

Excellent new guide for exciting area of Brazil 9 janvier 2011
Par James L. Spingarn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent new bird guide for a world-class region known as the Pantanal and Cerrado in interior Brazil. The authors are two of the most knowledgeable experts on the area there are -- John A. Gwynne and Robert S. Ridgely. Their text is perfect. Succinct but in conversational sentence structure form. It cover appearance and identification points, viewing suggestions, voice, habits and its frequency. Indigenous birds are marked with tiny Brazilian flags and threatened birds are marked with the category of risk. The maps are good, too.

The plates are virtually all first-rate. The passerines (perching birds) are the work, borrowed from excellent past volumes of his, of the fabulous Guy Tudor -- one of the best bird guide artists there is. The others, while done by various artists, are very well done, too.

In summation, this is an excellent guide for an exceptional region (World Heritage Class) that is extremely well done, and can be fitted in a largish pocket for bush viewing and solidly bound for some rough use. Amazon is offering it at a bargain price. If great bird guides interest you, don't pass up this beauty!

A great complement to Central Brazil tours 12 mars 2011
Par braulio c oliveira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Just received this field guide today and have no words to express how easy will be our lives in Central Brazil from now on. Illustrations are superb, passerines are from Guy Tudor's Birds of South America Vol. I and II, and non-passerines from several artists with equal talent. There is no gaps between plates as several multi-artists books, all artists did their best. An astonishing 284 plates with illustrations which vary from two to six species, each one with a distribution map and text in the opposite page make it easy to look for the bird you saw in the field. An introductory set of habitat descriptions with wonderful photographs and informative text is an extra bonus to the siesta hours after lunch. Worth of mention is Ridgely's tendency to change some names in English and also scientific to better fit the species involved (e.g. White-banded Tanager to Shrike-like Tanager and Conothraupis mesoleuca to Rhynchothraupis mesoleuca, in both cases make sense and should be widely adopted by the ornithological community). Different from other "field" guides written by Ridgely, this is truly a "field" book which can be carry on your vest's pocket or any book bag. If you are planning to take a birding trip to Brazil, easily you can spend two weeks birding "The Best of the Pantanal" and the "Cerrado Specialties" of Central Brazil, and this book will be your perfect companion, indeed this book is a must!
